#931863 - 2nd Mar 2015 4:44pm Various Birkenhead images

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help in sourcing some old photos and/or video for a family video I am making in memory of my dad who passed away earlier this week. I am trying to find photos about some of the places he used to live and work.

He used to live on Fox Street in Birkenhead so any old photos would be great (I know it has now been rebuilt).
The places he worked are:
- Blue Funnel (or better known as Blue Flu. Based at Odyssey Works in Corporation Road)
- Locomotors (Rank Hovis McDougall in Shrewsbury Road)
- Birkenhead Transport (I believe later known as MPTE or MPT) located on Laird Street
- Manweb, but started at CEGB. I know they were based in Prenton but I always remember him talking about somewhere else before they moved there

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
